Quantum Break – New patch adds G-Sync/FreeSync support, removes CPU limitation

Remedy has released a new patch for the PC version of Quantum Break. According to the changelog, this patch adds support for disabling V-sync (in other words, it adds support for G-Sync and FreeSync monitors), packs general fixes, and removes the SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3 limitation.

By removing the SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3 limitation, PC gamers can play the game on unsupported, below minimum spec hardware.

Remedy also claimed that while this update does not feature any performance improvements, it will continue to look into new hardware and figure out how to optimize Quantum Break for the PC.

This latest update can be downloaded from the Windows 10 Store, and you can read its changelog below.

Quantum Break – Update 1.6.2016 Changelog:

  • Support for disabling V-sync which will allow users to take advantage of G-Sync or FreeSync
  • Fixed an issue with game controllers not working correctly on some configurations
  • General fixes
  • In response to requests from fans, we have removed SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3 limitation, which will enable “Quantum Break” on Windows 10 to run on unsupported, below minimum spec hardware. However, Quantum Break is not designed to run on older or unsupported hardware, and we strongly encourage you ensure your PC meets the necessary system requirements before purchasing or playing “Quantum Break” on Windows 10
